Vicksburg is replete with monuments and memorials to different units and states, but none are as imposing as Illinois's monument, which cost the equivalent of millions of dollars when it was built a century ago. It is like a miniature version of the Pantheon in...More

The views leading up to the monument are breathtaking. So well perserved. On any day expect beautiful photos. Take plenty of water.
